I'm Watching You

By teocali
My thanks to you all for the fab response to my last upload, Mirror Image, with a special thank you to Val123 for the GEA and to Maiwand, Mossyoak, Tomcat, Gezina, Maratsuikka, Brisco and Vince_S for their User Awards - thank you so much folks - very encouraging and very much appreciated Smile

Today's upload is somewhat out of my comfort zone and I hope you will like it. Went to a family party on Saturday and was entranced by this little sweetheart - she was fascinated by the camera and totally unselfconscious.

As you say a real sweetie. No doubt someone in the future will have his heart broken, but until then lets enjoy the sweet innocence of a child. A wonderful image.

What steels this for me is the cheeky innocent grin and innocence, and not forgetting the ice-cream moustache.
Brilliant portrait full of joy, captured so well

Nothing to beat a portrait of a sublimely innocent and happy child Sylvia. This is just wonderful ( including the ice cream chin !! )

You see Sylvia, it's good to get out of your comfort zone now and then : )
This is a wonderful portrait, with nice even lighting and such a great capture of innocence and unknowing.
Maybe for composition's sake crop away a bit on the left of the frame to take the subject off centre.
You'll be using a flash gun next ; )
beautiful portrait shot,well done!
